The Programmable Controllers (PLC) is the backbone of modern industrial automation. Maintenance Technicians of all backgrounds need to be familiar with PLCs to the level where they can fault find effectively. This course focuses on effective fault finding on PLC controlled systems.
The Omron SYSMAC CPIL PLC system is used for the practical exercises on the course. The programming language being Ladder Logic. However, the fault finding techniques being taught are generic and so are applicable to all PLC systems, Omron, Siemens, Mitsubishi included. Other programming languages such as Instruction List and Function Block Diagram are also considered.
Who is this course for?
- Mechanical Fitters
Note: Max of 6 Attendees per course
The aim of this course is to provide a methodology for effective fault finding in processes in your plant controlled by Programmable Controllers.
The areas covered are:
- A Review of PLC Theory
- Developing PLC Controlled Systems.
- The documentation required for effective fault-finding.
- The use of the I/O List in fault Diagnosis
- Using Electrical Drawings
- Using the “on board” PLC facilities for fault-finding.
Course Delivery: This is a practical course. Participants will gain “hands on” experience in fault-finding using our PLC Controlled equipment.
Costs: €675 per person
